representing the towers we lost that day. we will never forget. good evening. thank you for joining us. a very full hour ahead. for the first time anywhere, a former navy seal talks about the classified mission to rescue beau bergdahl. and rudy giuliani joins us. live pictures of lower manhattan. breaking news about a presidential hopeful this time around who seems to be quickly losing hope. here's what former texas governor rick perry said late today before members of the conservative eagle form in st. louis. >> when i gave my life to christ, i said your ways are greater than my ways. your will is superior to mine.
today i submit to you his will remains a mystery. but some things have come and become very clear to me. that is why today i am suspending my campaign for the presidency of the united states. >> governor perry polling in the single digits and stopped paying campaign staffers. failed to make the primetime cnn debate five days away in the reagan library. and showed every sign of going nowhere. reaction now from cnn commentator, donald trump supporter, jeffrey lord, and senior adviser to the rand paul super pac, concerned american voters what do you make of this? not a huge surprise. timing of it sooner than some thought? >> well i think there is a couple interesting lessons here. number one, governor perry is the one who went out of his way to attack donald trump said he
was a cancer on the republican party. his numbers tanked. and today, we see that he's, you know, in essence pulling out of the race u.n. we. number two, along the lines an interesting situation in texas. he is of course the former governor of texas. senator cruz also in the race, is, has a whole different, from texas and has a whole different view of donald trump. cruz is succeeding. perry is pulling out. i think there is a lesson. >> we saw one of perry's temperature advisers join trump's campaign. struggling to pay staff. in the smaller debates on wednesday. are you surprised by this? >> i am surprised because the super pac still has cash in the bank. i was certain that the hipster glasses were going to bea game changer for him. that didn't really work out. >> your glasses are kind of hipster, too t. as are mine. >> that's why i'm betting on it. i'm betting on it.
>> i'll get some. >> the volatility in this race is sort of representative of the new politics. last cycle rick perry top of his game where donald trump is now. i would expect to see lots of ups and downs and rick perry the first to go. but some of these other candidates are going to have a second life as, someone like ben carson. either he goes up or down. see what happens. >> it is incredible, jeff, when you think about it to matt's point. last time around he was so far, out in front. everybody was kind of looking at him as -- suddenly the savior of the gop. he had 28%. same if sizable lead trump has right now. that really cratered. people are saying he is a better candidate this time around. is it just the electorate has changed? what people want has changed? >> well, you know, frankly i think what happened was in 2012 there was all that expectation. and he basically cratered.
then. you know he had the problem in the debate. there was some policy problems there with texas, illegal immigration. and i think, scholarships for kids, or state funding for, for illegal immigrants kids and this sort of thing. basically the more base got to know, national base got to go governor perry they were sort of flat on him. i don't think frankly he ever recovered frimenom it. i don't think the expectations were high this time. the trump factor complicated it for him and others. inevitably in this which happens all the time, you know, eventually somebody start to dominate the field and your money drains slowly not sustainable. you lose your support herers th is nowhere else to go until you get to the pent todoint today. good to have you on. have a good weekend. at the top, rudy giuliani is on the program. get his reaction. and the rise of political new yorker, donald trump not without
acknowledging, this morning, politics gave way to remember everyone who gave their lives 14 years age at fort mead, maryland, president obama spoke with the troops. >> today is a solemn day. i started my day commemorating 9/11. and all of the people who were killed on that day. and you know i have had an opportunity as president to meet with many of the survivors, the family members of those who were killed, and you know, on on this particular day we are constantly reminded of their loss. we want to let them know that we do not forget those who were fallen. we are inspired by the
survivors, who have the scars seen and unseen of the terrible day. >> president obama this afternoon. joining to us talk about 9/11, future face of terrorism and breaking campaign news, former new york may your and presidential candidate rudy giuliani. first of all the breaking news tonight. rick perry dropping out. surprise? what are your thoughts on it? >> not a surprise. rick was having trouble. been in the papers last two, three weeks, raising money. i know a lot of his people. a big supporter of mine. >> huge supporter of yours early on. >> we have a lot of overlapping friend. i knew he was having real difficulty raising money. i am expected something like this. like this would happen. i feel bad because he was so much better a candidate this time than last time. the timing is everything in politics as you know. >> you have known donald trump for a long time. mayor of new york. does it surprise you how far he has gone so far? >> yeah, sure. at first i didn't think, but i can see why. i can see what's happening.
>> he's tapped into something? >> he's tapping into something. and he's also, he's also talking to people openly and freely and that gives him a sense of, of being honest with me. >> i want to talk more about trump. you wrote a piece in "the wall street journal" about, obviously on this incredibly important day, anniversary of 9/11. and islamist terrorism and the threat that still xiexists. do you believe we are less safe? >> in a certain way. we are more safe against what happened in the past. we fight the last battle. meaning, we are much safer against airplane hijackings, airplanes being used as missiles, that sort of thing. we put a lot of time and effort into that. we are much less safe against the smaller attack. >> the active shooter, mumbai style attack? >> yeah. i think we are much more vulnerable to that now. and that's because the nature of
our enemy has changed. i always had a sense about al qaeda under bin laden. they weren't going to pull another attack so they could pull one as big as september 11. he didn't want to go in the opposite direction. i think these people have gotten a sense they can destabilize us with small ear tacks. >> on national security. obviously not endorsing any candidate at this point. on national security is there a candidate who you, every time you hear him, you think, he or she knows. >> lindsay graham. >> yeah. >> lindsay to me on national security, on military and, and -- rubio, i think the two of them, probably have the best feel for that. that doesn't mean i will endorse them. it is much bigger than that. it is also something that, you know, going to depend on a president's learning curve and who he brings in with him as to how you handle this.
>> with this upcoming debate. a lot of people now, you have trim w donald trump fighting with dr. ben carson. carson says he will not continue that. with carly fiorina. jeb bush. a lot of people on the stage who are trying to figure out how to deal with donald trump as they have been for the last couple months. how would you if you were against donald trump be dealing with donald trump? >> i wouldn't. >> you wouldn't? >> i would not. there have been enough lessons you are not going to beat him at his game. you will have to beat him at your game. you will have to hope your game works. i think jeb is handling it correctly for where he stands right now. he is being rational. he is being reasonable. laying out positions. laying out policies. his tax policy was a good substance. >> is he planning a long game here? >> seems that's what he is doing. >> the rules in the past for iowa, new hampshire, were you got to be on the ground, out shaking hand, got to meet everybody in iowa and everybody in new hampshire, couple times. >> in iowa, you have about
80,000 of the 500,000 republicans show up for prthe primary. the most right-wing, most conservative. >> trump is doing campaigning from trump tower and it is effective. on the ground from time to time. doing a lot of stuff in new york? >> it is the nonpolitician communication. remember, the man is a skilled, enormously skilled communicator. like ronald reagan. in a different way. like president obama is a skilled communicator. he is sure making it fun. >> well, and getting people to watch. the number of people watching the last republican date unprecedented. >> that i think it is good. it is educating people. >> trump claims that he as president would sort of change, don't want to say tone. he makes fun of reporters for making fun of his tone. he would be different than the campaign trail. campaign trail is one game. being president is different. do you believe there is a different donald trump?
>> first, that is true. running and governing are two different things. and if you don't know the difference between the two you can never be a good mayor, governor or president. yeah, i think he is a good enough executive that he does know that difference. >> mr. mayor, always good to talk to you. >> good to talk to you. >> ahead, sam cook sang it. don't know much about history. the question does mike huckabee. when you hear what he said about things every school kid learns. you might wonder. tonight keeping them honest. later, former navy seal, jimmy hatch. remarkable man speaking out about the sacrifice he and so many others made to rescue sergeant bergdahl from captivity. talks about the mission, mission that gave him wounds he had to leave the seals. the pain of leaving brothers on the battlefield and the darkness that followed and the darkness that he is now emerging from.
keeping them honest tonight. mike huckabee's opposition to the supreme court decision and factually questionable way he is making his case in the last couple days saying a long, long, long, superseded ruling by the supreme court remains the law of the land. first some background. as you know he h-- he has wrapped his arms around the county clerk and goes back to work monday and made more news today which we will get to shorply. here's what governor huckabee said on stage when she first got
out >> she followed the only law that was in front of her. the law of the kentucky constitution which 75% of the people of this state affirmed and decided that marriage is what it has always been. and what the bible says it to be. >> we should point out plenty of social conservatives share his views on marriage. many also agree that public servants should be permitted to disregard or not enforce laws that clash with deeply held beliefs. the first not an issue. second debatable. neither of which we are talking about now. the issue is purely factual. has governor huckabee been getting historical facts wrong. now this all began after the supreme court in late june overturned state laws barring same-sex marriage. in the statement on that day, governor huckabee said, and i quote -- that is a widely held opinion and red herring and factually wrong.
something the court has been doing if you remember history, ins 1903. called judicial review. we suggest former governor mike huckabee should know all about it. probably does. governors sign laws many of which get challenged in courts and some of which are found unconstitutional. civics 101. that is not the end of it. mr. huck abe on wednesday took his judicial reasoning new a whole new planet. listen to what he told conservative radio host michael medved. >> dred scott decision remains to this day the lay of the land. that says that black people are not fully human. does any body follow dred scott? >> now that decision, again from high school history class, affirms in the simplest terms that slaves were property. governor huckabee was equating the marriage decision to that and suggesting because we don't abide by the dred scott decision made by the court, the same should apply to the marriage ruling. keeping them honest when it comes to dred scott, let's be charitable and say it does not
work like that it is not on the books. two reasons the first aavailable for viewing this week in fact on pbs. >> from director ken burns, for the first time in high definition, the civil war. >> that's right the civil war. a direct consequence of the civil war was a pair of amendment to the constitution. the 13th in 165 which abolished slavery, and the 14th which overturned the basis for the dred scott decision no matter what people believed about slavery in the years that followed. no matter what mike huck abe believes now about marriage. joining now to elaborate. senior legal analyst jeffrey toobin. do you believe mike huckabee believes this, what do you make of this? >> i don't know. it's friday night. my experience is most people on friday night want to talk about 19th century constitutional history. so, you know really a good time to talk about this. >> it is, no doubt. >> and what he actually believes and what he said, i think he does believe this.
there is a whole school of thought that says you know that, god's law and nature's law can supersede the constitution. a lot of people believe that. that is not the law of the united states. not what the supreme court has the said. not how the constitution is written. but, you know i think he is being sincere. he is just wrong. >> but it is interesting. the same people, who are arguing that, would have a problem with sharia and people who believe in sharia believe it should supersede the law of any given land? >> that's right. the constitution is clear and the way the court has interpreted the constitution, you know there are a lot of murky areas. this happens not to be one of them. you know, the -- the dred scott decision was overruled by the 13th and 14th amendment. everybody knew that. that was the purpose of the 13th and 14th amendment. so the idea that dred scott is still on the books is as you said factually inact rid.
a -- inaccurate. same point about judicial review. marbury vs. madison. it is the law duty of the court to stay what the law is. they can overturn laws. conservatives like it when nay overturn campaign finance laws or gun control laws. this law they didn't like it. >> on the same broadcast should tell viewers huckabee said that accepting same-sex marriage as a law would be surrendering to judicial tyranny even quoting jefferson to make his point. he, and that's an argument he used before. >> that's right. you know, jefferson liked politicians for time and memorial have disagreed with things the supreme court has done. and politicians get very angry at the supreme court. franklin roosevelt tried to pack the court with more justices. because he was so angry with what they did. that's not the same thing as saying that the supreme court is not the arbiter of the final law of the land. it is. >> kim davis, she is taking a break this week. going back to work monday.
if she tries to interfere with deputies now giving out marriage licenses, what happens? >> she will go back to jail. i don't think there is any doubt. if she stops her county from giving more licenses, judge bunning, supervising the case has the made quite clear, that he is not going to put up with it. she filed an emergency appeal today. to try to get some sort of wiggle room. but i just, i think the law here is just so straight forward. and the interesting thing is, her lawyer has not really said what she is going to do on monday. monday is going to be very interesting about whether she basically accedes to letting deputieser to the marriage licenses or she continues to defy the court. >> we'll see. jeffrey, thank you straer much. next, 360 exclusive. a story never been told until tonight. a former navy seal reveals, details about a classified mission to rescue army sergeant

on this never of 9/11 attacks we remember those who lost their lives. a day that sent off chain reactions affecting countless numbers of people. the day that led to the war in afghanistan and to the story that you are about to see tonight. a story that hasn't been told. it involves former navy seal, and army private bowe bergdahl. remember bergdahl is the soldier who would disappear from the outpost, get taken prisoner by insurgents, taliban, held for five years before his release in a controversial swap for five taliban prisoners. next week, bergdahl faces a grand jury hearing. charged with desertion. to night you will hear the harrowing details of the mission to rescue hip. retired navy seal, jimmy hatch was there. told me he is speaking out tonight because he believes it is important for people to know the sacrifices he and others
made to try to bring bergdahl home. a mission that changed hatch's laf forever. >> what was the first time you heard the name bowe bergdahl? >> so we are sitting in this intel center. a few of the guys on my crew. and the guy walks up, with a piece of paper. basically information. bowe bergdahl, where he is from, his rank. the guy is talking to us. the guys are saying he just walked off. and i looked at the guy, i said, somebody is going to get killed looking for this kid. >> reporter: navy seal, jimmy hatch had no idea how right he was. a week and a half after bowe bergdahl disappeared he says his seal team received intelligence about where the young army private could be and who was holding him hostage. >> we had to plan quick. hostage rescue stuff is really hard. and you have to be you know, fast. so we planned it out. spun out. and i was in a little task
force. every service was represented. air force guys marx reasons, army guys. got on these helicopters. and took off. flew in. and -- you know, got close to the ground. it was on. >> reporter: a night rescue, as the the two helicopters touched down. hatch says the team came under heavy fire. >> guys had to immediately deal with a pretty major gunfight. >> at that point, what's the goal? >> the goal its to get that kid. >> find bowe bergdahl. >> yeah. fast. we were close. because things started right away. you know? we had, they had a big, big belt fed machine gun. later as the the search was going on. guy were hitting dudes with rpgs, it was chaos, man. >> reporter: hatch believes intensity of the fight, heaven weaponry of the enemy signalled they were closing in on bergdahl. >> it is very unnerving to be a prisoner. >> reporter: despite the murky details of how bergdahl ended up
a hostage. for hatch the mission's objective was crystal clear. >> he was an american. he had a mom. i didn't want a mom see him get his head chopped off on youtube. you've know what i mean. >> that went through your mind? >> for sure. >> reporter: in the middle of the fire fight with every second counting, hatch split off with two men and a secret weapon. a dog named remco. >> at some point i could see a couple guys, 400, 500 meters away. in a flat field. they were moving. then they kind of disappeared. so i'm like we got to, got to get over there. we went, we went at them. put the dog out in front of us. his body language will tell you if there is people close by for sure. we couldn't see these guys. the dog was out, probably, two three meters out in front of us. we were moving pretty good. i saw his fur go up. his ears go up. he started to pick up speed. and boom, boom, two round go into the dog. the muzzle flash lights up. the guy who shot the dog.
>> reporter: you could see the guy who shot the dog? >> with the muzzle flash. yeah. i couldn't see him before that. i start shooting that gift. the other bad gift. he started spraying wildly with his ak-47. just -- so one of those bullets got lucky. >> your leg was knocked from under you. >> yeah, totally. started to put all my weight on it. i am in the air. and -- i don't scream. that's what i am thinking. don't scream. >> you didn't want to scream. >> those dude were right there, you know. and i boom, i land. i started screaming. i mean it was, it hurt, man. >> the bone was shattered. >> yeah, it sent the bone, top part of my femur. right above the knee. sent the bone out the back of my leg. i was bleeding really bad. >> reporter: in a heartbeat, hatch's mission changed from rescuing bowe bergdahl to keeping himself alive. >> i was laying there. initially i thought man, i am dead. i am so close the i can't move. then i hear my buddies, and i
hear their guns, i hear them going to work. and then i hear, the guy, throws a grenade. the shrapnel is flying around. i am like -- >> reporter: one of the taliban guys threw a grenade. >> the team finished off both taliban fighters and applied a tourniquet to hatch's leg. though the fighting raged around him. helicopters were called back to extract the now wounded seal. >> when i get hit, that changes the plan. so, they have to take, we have to kind of concentrate some resources on the screaming guy. and get the helicopters in there to get him out. and those dudes on the helicopters they came back man, they're the ones who dropped us off. they didn't hesitate. they flew right back in. >> reporter: hatch was evacuated with remco, the fatally wounded dog. the leg, bandage, bleeding, it was the last mission the end of
his war as a navy seal. >> the mission to rescue bergdahl failed. and jimmy hatch has complicated emotions in the aftermath of it. which you will hear about next in part two of our exclusive interview. hatch tells me about the dark place he ended up in and huh heap is getting through it with the help of his family and dogs like the one that was killed during the mission. dogs that have become his new mission in life. plus, tonight a high speed car chase across los angeles county, from the carjacking, beginning, hostage taking at a rest rant to the swat team that ended the horror story. we'll see it all ahead. ♪ ♪ the final countdown! if you're the band europe, you love a final countdown. it's what you do. if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. it's what you do.

more now, my exclusive interview with jimmy hatch, about a mission that until now has been a little known secret. as you heard in the first part of the interview. the mission was to rescue bowe bergdahl. hatch is speaking publicly for the first time because he feels it is important for people to know the sacrifices so many people made to try to bring bowe bergdahl home. i asked him if he felt like that mission was a failure. >> to me it was. in the sense that, i mean, we didn't get him.
>> do you know if he was there in that, in that area where you were? >> you know, i was told that -- he for sure was in that area. that they found things on some of the dead guys that, that, you know, indicated that, he was there. >> does it matter to you that, i mean is that a component of that you were wounded on the mission which didn't succeed and what the objective was. is that something that -- resonated with you. >> i took a lot of that on myself. i felt like if i had done things differently. not gotten hurt. you know the mission wouldn't have failed. yeah, no way to know that. at the time i certainly it was a failure to me. i was the cause of it. >> hatch was awarded a purple heart and the bronze star for his actions that night by secretary of the navy ray maevis. >> you will not lose this war. bah that is deep. there is a lot of layers. and we are all blessed. >> hatch felt tremendous guilt for as he saw it failing on the
bergdahl mission. and for leaving his brothers on the battlefield to fight without him. that along with the wound to his leg that ended his 21 years as a seal. it all added up. and sent him to a dark and dangerous place. >> pain meds, you know, chasing them with vodka, and, i basically became, you know, just this pathetic human. >> did you think about killing yourself? >> oh, yeah, i had a plan for sure. >> you had made out a plan? >> yeah. yeah. >> that's when psychologists whenever somebody goes to them and says i am thinking abut killing myself. that's the first question, have you actually taking the next step of making out a plan. so you had? >> for sure. i was a planner. so, so, this incident happens with the gun in my mouth crying. >> you put a gun in your mouth? >> oh, yeah, in front of my wife. and my wife, somehow.
got the gun away from me. >> reporter: hatch was sent to a psychiatric hospital for his own protection. another seal, the same one who had gotten hem to safety on the helicopter in afghanistan who made sure he got there. >> he is going to, drive me to this hospital. and you know, there are no medals for driving your buddy to a psych hospital. so we get in the car and i looked at him. so we get in the car and i looked at him and i said, "man, i am running. i am president doing this." he is like, you have got to fix yourself. do it for yourself, your family. and do it for us. you are the beginning. there is going to be more like you. and it might be me. that just, stunned me. the guy saved my life.
>> with those words? >> twice. >> ever since -- ever since jimmy hatch has been on a path of healing. today he continues to honor those who saved his life including the dog killed on the bergdahl mission remco. >> she's fast. >> he started an organization called spike's canine fund to provide medical care and proper protection for police dogs, searching and rescue dogs, dogs that can be hurt or killed in the line of duty. >> i am not going to let her run really fast at you. >> no, i am good. ready for it. >> former naval dog handler himself. i asked have to show me some of what his dutch shepherd nina can do. with incredible precision, mina took me down again and again and
again. i felt the full weight, literally of hatch's respect and love for the brave working dogs. while hatch has come so far from those dark days after the mission to rescue bowe bergdahl, the mission that ended life as he knew it, he is finally telling his story because he wants the man who put him and so many others in harm's way to finally be held accountable. >> i want that kid to -- to have his day in court. because he is an american. he's got that coming. people say, oh, yeah, maybe he suffered enough because he was held captive. that's kind of like saying, if i go out and drink a bunch of vodka tonight and slam into a car with children in it and hurt them, but i get paralyzed from my waist down, that maybe i got paralyzed, you know, punished enough. i still need to be held accountable for the decisionize made. and i think that's the case about mr. bergdahl. i feel pretty strongly about that. he need to know how much was
risked. >> that's important to you that he knows that. >> yeah. it's important that americans know that. >> we hope now they do. we corroborated the detales of jimmy hatch's incredible story of that mission to rescue bergdahl through two other military personnel who were with him that night and additional sources in the intelligence community. we asked the u.s. navy to verify hatch's story. while the navy confirmed hatch's long, distinguished career as a seal they was not comment about this mission. for more information on the nonprofit hatch founded or if you want to donate go to spikesk9fund.org. and check out the website there. he is really, just an amazing, amazing guy. trying to do some good work for animals. >> just ahead. breaking news in phoenix. where police are looking for the shooter or shooters, who are terrorizing a busy freeway. i will talk to the mayor. also coming up more than 100
